The rumor from a few weeks ago has now been confirmed as U2 will be the musical guest on SNL on December 2nd. Here's hoping the band members participate in at least a skit or two!

Yay! Hope the host "gels" with U2. Who has a movie coming out?

Been a long time since they've performed on a "mainstream" show. Talkies like Kimmel and Fallon excluded.

I am really, really hoping that Baldwin is on the show playing Trump and that somehow MacPhisto ties into this (maybe by visiting Trump?). That would be amazing.

I saw her name and had no idea who she was. I'll have to check out some of her work.

I read "The Lovely Bones" book, but refused to watch the movie since it seemed a bit unsettling to watch something about the kid getting buried next door.  I didn't want to become a crazed, overprotective mother.

Listening to U2's performance of Elevation on SNL from donkeys years ago. What a performance. A pity it lost this edge for subsequent tours. Unfortunately I can't find a video on YouTube, but if anyone has a link please post. This is how Elevation should be played, but I doubt they'll ever play it like that again.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Last time U2 was on snl was NLOTH era, where host was Megan Fox? I remember a cute commercial with M Fox where Bono said "just because I'm good looking, doesn't mean I'm not talented" lol.

Maybe Bono and Saorise will do a skit where they try to "out Irish" each other. In my dream skit writing that is.
